Features That Apple Might Discontinue After iPhone 14: SIM Card Slot, Lightning Port, More

The Apple Far Out event is among the most highly anticipated events of 2022 for a good reason. After all, Apple is expected to debut the iPhone 14 lineup, in addition to the Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Pro, and the next-gen AirPods Pro. The upcoming iPhone 14 series is tipped to have a revamped design and improved performance, at least for the Pro models.


At the same time, reports suggest a few familiar features might go the way of the dodo following the iPhone 14 series. For instance, the notch itself is expected to be radically different on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. Some even claim the SIM card slot won’t be available on select iPhone 14 models. Here’s a list of features that Apple might discontinue past the iPhone 14 series.

Apple Might Get Rid Of The Ugly Notch, Finally

Apple Might Get Rid Of The Ugly Notch, Finally The notch is one of the first design aspects rumored to disappear with the iPhone 14 series. This is yet another example of Apple playing catch-up, since most Android phones feature a punch-hole cutout or a waterdrop notch, which provides a better screen real estate and enhances the overall experience.

Rumors suggest the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models will have two display cutouts instead of a single, wide notch. These include a punch-hole and another pill-shaped cutout. When the display is turned on, it might look like a single pill-shaped cutout. Meanwhile, Apple is expected to expand the content around the cutout for a better user experience. Reports also claim the improved notch won’t be available on the iPhone 14 base models. However, we can expect improved displays in all the upcoming iPhone models. It might finally be time to say goodbye to the unwieldy wide notch that’s been around for generations
